A heard of Pashmina goats and sheep in the lower Himalayas. Pashmina is the indigenous name for cashmere used by the mountain people throughout the Himalayan region. The Pashmina goats are raised primarily at higher elevations. Kashmir Pashmina wool is know to be the world’s finest measuring 12-15 microns in fabric thickness. Because of Kashmir conflict and the die-off of animals in Ladakh due to blizzards, the neighbouring country China has been able to dominate Pashmina productions in the past few decades.

A reputed lensman and journalist, my father (Regret Iyer @regretiyerphoto) trained me at a very young age to see and capture some unique and human interest stories. And, in last 15 years — every since my very first photograph was published in a newspaper — I have been lucky enough to have travelled to some remote corners of the world and capture intriguing and fascinating stories from the natural world (wildlife, wild places and human journey.
